REVIEW

Le Mas du Loriot

Chirping cicadas and rustling leaves are the only ambient noises at this quiet haven in the hills near Gordes.

Le Mas du Loriot

About this Hotel

Price From $78

Each room has a private terrace with a magnificent view: a small lavender field, and far behind it the mighty massif of the Luberon.

An alluring pool is tucked among the trees. The graceful room decor includes tile floors, white walls, a painting or two, and rich fabrics on the beds and windows; bathrooms are stocked with goodies from Yves Rocher.

The eight rooms are accessible from the outside, so mingling with your neighbors is strictly voluntary.

The restaurant serves dinner on weekdays; half-board is strongly encouraged, though not obligatory—and probably not a bad idea, considering how hard it might be to find the energy necessary to get up from your deck chair and drive into town.

Details Doubles from $78 (€55). Open March to mid-November.
